Featured artist

OK...the other day when I chucked all responsibilities and went to Scott's I saw an artist I had seen many times.  This time I stopped to talk to her so I could express how much I love her work.  You can usually find her in the South building and she is always painting away.  

I found out that she lives in Florida, and comes up to do Scott's every month.  Here are a few images of her stunning work.
This is one of my favorites.  I love how simple it is, of course these ARE my favorite colors.....
How beautiful is this.  It would be great for a little girls room....
Similar to the first one.
Are you loving this as much as I am?
Love the frame on this one.
The greens and blues.  This would be beautiful with a deep dark green velvet sofa and pale, pale ice blue walls.
Put this in a bookshelf to add some pizazz.
Love the dress series.  How great in a dressing room.
Here is Cheryl painting a wedding dress....wouldn't that be a great gift to someone?
She started this one a few minutes before we began talking.......So she can paint and concentrate on a conversation......genius.  I think I am getting to the point where I am not so good at multi-tasking anymore.  I feel like a loser :(

If you are interested in pricing or something custom she can be reached at 404 966 6234.  www.cherylconnellyart.com
Call her!!!

Stay tune for some great pictures.   I also met another blogger Gretchen Opgenorth  She was recently on Nate's series House Proud!  It was her first time at the market.  You need to check out her blog if you haven't already.

My unpacking is coming along.  Slowly.  Cause I can't make decisions.

Hope your week is going great!

Pin It!

gorgeous color palette and pretty subjects...
love the landscape with the green trees...
so nice that you stopped to talk to her and then feature her work on your blog....
multi-tasking is over-rated..don't worry that it's not as important to you..niceness is under-rated and that's the more important quality to possess... :)

Love the paintings....especially the landscape with the trees. All of them are in my favorite colors.

Don't you just love "discovering" someone with talent?! Which painting did you buy? I like the one with the trees...
I know your pain about multi-tasking!

So pretty. Had to check out web site. For some reason it kept rerouting me to one of those with the pop up "you are a winner ..." boxes. I googled and think the site is http://cherylconnelly.com/ (no www). Thanks so much for sharing her work! And I LOVE your blog! - Allison

Her work is absolutely stunning! People who can paint like this amaze me!

Julie said...

Her work is almost as lovely as she is!

I stopped by and perused her work while I was there, gorgeous in person. I had so much fun at Scott's and it was great meeting you on my maiden voyage!

Shereekeee-
Cheryl is also at MetroLina ( Charlotte- first weekend of every month) often, for your bloggers who are out of the state of Ga. I'm sure she showed you her painting that was featured in "Veranda". Her paintings are very affordable for anyone who wants to have an "original"; I believe she will consider custom work as well.
Your fan, KBP

Her work is so pretty - i love her use of turquoise for so many of her backgrounds. My favourite is the trees. :)

Morgan @ PepperDesignBlog.com said...

Going to check out her website now - love her work! Beautiful!

Note: You have to leave off the 'www' or you get a horrible spammy survey link! Do you know off hand her price range?

would you believe that I killed a Mother in law's tongue that my inlaw's gave me that had been around in their family since the 1800s? Seriously, I did. If you want a laugh, you can read about here http://wonderwallinteriors.blogspot.com/2011/05/mother-in-laws-tongue.html
